What is dental tourism?
The term «dental tourism» means when someone from a foreign country goes to another country to have their dental treatment done. As simple as that. But why? Many reasons! In Costa Rica we have many positive characteristics, that is why we are considered one of the best places to do dental tourism.
Costa Rica is the most stable country in the region. We have a very solid democracy. We are far less expensive (explanation below). We use the best materials and technologies around the world (yes, the same brands used in the US) and adding all that, we have a natural paradise!
Why does it cost less?
Sometimes we tend to compare price with quality, but everyone knows a story where this rule was not applied. I have another story called «Dental Tourism in Costa Rica». As you might know, we have lower prices than lots of countries like the United States for example and quality is not a reason.
When we talk about materials prices in Latin America, we can see a HUGE difference in the exact product and the same brand. The reason? We have a smaller economy, so manufacturers adjust their pricing to our economy.
Another big reason are operative costs. Taxes, bills, renting or buying a place to build your clinic, hiring experienced personal and many other things cost less in Costa Rica, and this is reflected on the final price of the treatment.
